Online CSS Unminifier
Note: the easiest way to look a site’s CSS is to use a tool like firebug on firefox, but sometimes you still might want to view the full source to see any browser-specific hacks that won’t appear in firebug or to just take a peak at how someone may organize his or her code.
Update: June 2011—It’s now all the rage to drop the semicolon from the last declaration in a CSS rule (right before the closing brace), so I updated the unminifier to handle this case and put an example in the sample CSS.
Update2: September 2011—the CSS Unminifier now exists as a standalone script that you can run on your computer. I converted it to a node project, which you can install with npm (Node Package Manager) using
npm install cssunminifier and you can see the code on the github page.
